Summary:
This ride is best done in as a loop by starting with climbing up Keystone Gulch Road to the West Ridge Loop. Then up to the Colorado Trail. Then downhill past something like 20 switchbacks till you connect with a right turn that leads back toward Kesytone. From here on out, it's a ripper downhill past the homestead. Look for single track on your right up the hill when you reach this road. This will take you back to the golf course. Keep to the single track in the woods and it will take you past the planks on the cliff face, then back to Keystone Gulch Rd.

Recommended Route:
As described, this route is close to 20 miles or so. The climb is like 8 miles, but all rideable. Nothing technical, but depending on your conditioning,can be a workout. The rest is pretty much downhill and a blast.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Colorado Trail - all sections/Burro Trail to Mayflower Lakes/ Peaks Trail to the Miner's/

Summary:
This is NOT a technical trail. Since it follows an aqueduct pipeline it is as level as it can be to let water run downhill. Smooth, mostly dirt. Instead of going across the Keystone ranch road to the golf course trails, go left and add a few more miles that have some climbs, fast single track and go as far as you want on unmarked trails.....but, the aqueduct trail just gets you started and it is fun to ride for the view itself as you wind around the ridges.

Recommended Route:
Done in combo with all the other "green" trails at Keystone.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
The downhills from the gondola....west ridge, etc are all nice and some are technical. Maybe being from the east and use to loose rock, roots and slime makes riding in the rockies seem less technical than a local. Rode this a couple of times and would reccommend you do it for the view if nothing else. Any level of fitness or skill can ride this trail.

Summary:
This is a short, but fun trail. The best part is when you leave the aquaduct trail and enter the golf course. This newly built section is a hoot! What a thrill flying down the trail as those rich old farts on golf carts give you startled looks.

Recommended Route:
Dillon to Keystone via Oro Grande Trail (see Tenderfoot Trail)- Keystone trails - Keystone Gulch - Aquaduct Trail (aka Flume Trail) - Golf Course - bike path back to Dillon

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Colorado Trail, Ptarmigan Trail, Peaks Trail
